Hellicane: For Those In Need

NOTE: The PodPoet Podcast is currently on hiatus while the PodPoet pursues another poetic project over at Hellicane: an evolving blog of original poems by, for and about those affected by the recent hurricanes. It's become the most popular site of its kind on the Internet! Plans for a Hellicane Podcast are in the works. Hellicane: because sometimes the power of poetry can help those in the greatest of need.

Poetry [that] takes me past the pictures the media shows, to what it WAS LIKE to experience the storm and what happened afterward.

As a victim of Hurricane Katrina...my pains have not been soothed upon reading bad poetry. But perhaps others might feel differently.

What a very unique idea. This ties us together as human beings: those who survived and those who watched from afar...
